New from Southern Illinois

Hello all. Picked up my first MB a few weeks ago. Its a 82 240D that my grandpa had owned since it was rolled off the show room floor. 240,000 miles and amazing condition. I have pics on my camera just havent uploaded them yet. Will try to get to that tonight.

I am a student at Southern Illinois University. Double majoring in automotive technology and Business Management. I also own a 2005 Mitsubishi Evo VIII running on E85 @ 30 psi. 383hp 395tq. Should be a high 11 sec car but have yet to take it to a quarter mile. Have done 1/8th mile with a 7.6 @ 92.

Anyways Im excited to finally own this car. I have always loved this car and plan to keep it in the family as long as I am alive

Welcome to the Forum. The 240D will run forever and I would like to see it when you get a chance to post the pictures you have.

Also, the Evo sounds awesome.

Quality & Service, Guaranteed for Life
